Scary Movie III is a record-breaker in the States.
The movie was packed out over the weekend, bringing in a massive pounds 31m in ticket sales - the biggest October opening ever in America.
Scary Movie III, which pokes fun at traditional sci-fi and horror films, knocked the remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre off the top spot.
The Chainsaw Massacre saw its ticket sales slashed in half to pounds 9.2m.
The last biggest pre-Halloween box office opener was horror-thriller Red Dragon, which pulled in pounds 22.2m last October.
